Lanvin Re-constructed

Lanvin Re-constructed
When it comes to re-constructing a garment, It truly feels like I’ve gone shopping right in the comfort of my own closet.  I’ve had this vintage Lanvin dress over a decade and found it to be quite lovely but kinda boring as seen here.  I wanted to keep the cuteness of the dress but give it more of a modern feel so I removed the top half of the dress from the bottom, turning it into separates,  removed the pin tucks in the skirt and replaced them with my beloved pleats.  I also made the collar a permanent stand up collar, shortened the hem and tied the sash in the back.  Completely feels brand new.
